This Boutique Hotel in a very central part of downtown San Diego was such a huge bonus for us to find. The corner room 607 was beautifully appointed and had huge windows with a great view of the city. We opened the window ( nice perk) at night for fresh air. It was not noisy. When we walked in we said WOW! They even provided bathrobes!
The front desk staff, a lovely lady whose name I cannot remember, was very efficient and friendly and went out of her way to give us a very early check in. She said she was quite new to the hotel, but one would not know it as we watched her multi task her job with several guests arriving at the desk at the same time. Thank you pretty lady.
We decided to eat dinner at the hotel Bar & Grille. Another WOW. I had the pasta with barbequed salmon - the best I've ever tasted, it was fresh not frozen, and my hubby had his all time favourite Meat Loaf. We cleaned our plates completely. They had a fabulous wine - Leese Fitch Cabernet and we enjoyed 3 glasses of that. The young female server was so cute and attentive and she was definitely a good will ambassador for her hotel. A happy employee always gives good service!
We had an early flight and the hotel chauffeur Moe took us to the airport in his immaculate Town Car for less than it would cost us to drive in a well used city taxi.
We just love San Diego and it is our first destination of choice in sunny California. No Los Angeles for us. Would we stay here again? Definitely. We will be back for a longer stay next time and we will book directly with the hotel again. We find it's not cheaper to book another way. We always get the best, and correct information directly from the hotel.
We travel for about 60 - 70 days per year and we have stayed in many over rated dumps that we have found on line. Not the case here. It's a TEN.
